Rehabilitation of fire damaged beech (Fagus sylvatica) forest in Dajti National Park through direct seeding
Rehabilitation of fire damaged beech (Fagus sylvatica) forest in Dajti National Park through direct seeding
Direct seeding is a regeneration technique in which tree seeds are used directly on the regeneration site instead of seedlings being transplanted from nurseries. There are several potential advantages of direct seeding compared to conventional planting. First, the technique may reduce the cost of regeneration by 50% or more. Secondly, seedlings produced after direct seeding develop a natural root system, and may therefore be better prepared to withstand the conditions prevailing at the regeneration site. The project will be implemented in the Dajti National Park in an area that has been affected by fire. This project will build on the positive results of small scale experiment of similar nature made in the same area one year ago.
